LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts) In 2015, Benny joined forces with America's legendary producer/songwriter, Richard Rudolph, ("Lovin You" - Minnie Ruperton), Grammy nominated producer Adam Berg ( Mindy") and Redd Carter (American Idol).

Tiatira was born in Medan, Indonesia in 1997. She is the oldest of four.
Her first single was Tak Rela (Indonesia), second was Mimpiku ( ABU TV Song) Indonesia, the third was Ku Yakin (Indonesia). In 2008 to 2009, Benny Simanjuntak hosted the TV series "It's all because of Benny/ Semua Karena OmBen", similar to "Star Search". This is where he discovered the 14 year old super vocalist. Her soulful, R&B sound captured the public and most of all, Benny's attention.
In 2012, Benny was appointed as the executive producer for the International singing competition, Asia Broadcast Union (ABU). The event debuted in the beautiful city of Hanoi, Vietnam and was a big success. Tiatira brought home the gold for Indonesia.
